Despite claims to the contrary, "natural gas" is not a bridge fuel to the clean energy future. As Professor Ingraffea from Cornell University so eloquently described, "It is a gangplank to climate disaster."

Methane's lifetime in the atmosphere is much shorter than carbon dioxide (CO2), but CH4 is more efficient at trapping radiation than CO2. Pound for pound, the comparative impact of CH4 is more than 25 times greater than CO2 over a 100-year period.
